Abstract

With rising costs in China and other Asian countries, textile and clothing manufacturing companies are looking at reshoring production to their original locations as an alternative. While there exists no standard approach to evaluate a production relocation decision. We developed a location decision model specific to the textile production processes based on factor rating method. The model identifies the most important factors and criterion to compare performance of concerned locations. Validity of the model is checked using a case analysis of weaving production process for countries of Germany, India and China.
